    As an adaptation of L. Frank Baum's book, it's quite true to the plot, and it's always great to see depictions of the characters that don't look like Judy Garland or the actors in costumes interpreting her companions as seen in the MGM film, but . . . the art, folks, the art! I think the choice of Enrique Fernández as the artist for this graphic novel adaptation was rather unfortunate, because his style is frankly not for the story. Totally inadequate, too cartoony in the childish/stick figure s As an adaptation of L.

I think the choice of Enrique Fernández as the artist for this graphic novel adaptation was rather unfortunate, because his style is frankly not for the story. Totally inadequate, too cartoony in the childish/stick figure sense of the word and not in the polished Disney sense. Monsieur Chauvel is a veteran of adapting classic children's literature, and he did a good job with adapting Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland to graphic novel format, but this time I believe it's not been his best try. My rating is just for the script, but I wouldn't recommend this, unfortunately.

    Che dire, ho un debole per tutto ciò che riguarda Oz.

    Like my jarring first encounter with Shel Silverstein, reading the unvarnished Oz series after growing up on the sugar-coated (but delightful) MGM film iteration required some acclimatization for this sheltered girl. But my favorite children's lit always ends up being that which doesn't shy away from the darker side of human nature. As J. K. Rowling and others understand so well, condescension to children is hardly the best means to equip them for life.

But my favorite children's lit always ends up being that which doesn't shy away from the darker side of human nature. As J. K. Rowling and others understand so well, condescension to children is hardly the best means to equip them for life. The best literature is comforting and challenging, and kids are smart enough to recognize when they're being overprotected.

    Questo fumetto non mi è piaciuto sia per i disegni, esageratamente "deformed" e caricaturali, a mio parere inguardabili, sia perché mi aspettavo una rivisitazione della storia mentre invece è pari pari uguale a quella originale. Uguale tranne nella parte più importante, manca infatti la frase che in sé racchiude tutto il senso e la morale dell'opera: no place is like home. Davvero una pessima trasposizione.

    Beautiful art and storytelling. I love the contrasting color palettes used to set the scenes. The writing slowed down the story a little. Too many scenes of Dorothy sleeping in a bed popped up to slow the narrative. I loved the design of the flying monkeys. In fact, I'd be hard pressed to say that you can design a bad flying monkey. They just always look so cool.

    A great graphic novel version of The Wizard of Oz. The art, which sometimes made my head hurt because of the perspective, was really amazing. The pages with a domination of one color were fabulous, as were the chapter page art. Folks of all ages will enjoy this quick version which is steady rival to Sabuda's pop-up retelling.

    Needed something lighter while reading '109 East Palace'. 1965 Airmont Classic ed. Complete and unabridged. Can honestly say the movie was better than the book. Don't think I'll be reading of of the sequels.

    This is the graphic novel version. Goodreads readers are silly and reviewing this edition as though it's the novel.

    This is a super-cool adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. The artwork is great (although sometimes the panels are just too small to really appreciate it).

    Very nice graphic novel version of the Wizard of Oz! I thought it was quite clever. A picture is worth a thousand words...you can spend some time examining these pictures!!
